This paper proposes the Application Specific Signal Processor(ASSP)-based implementation of the real-time signal processing system in both spatial domain and time domain for a phased-array radar. This paper also proposes the system-on-silicon hardware design of some ASSPs including the adaptive beamformer, FFT appliation specific integrated circuit, clutter map former and update, moving target extractor and video integrator. The advantages of the processing system are compact, efficient, and robust.
